Dodds Farm Outing
The Grade 6's went on an educational outing to Dodds Farm last week. What better way to apply the theory they've learnt in Natural Science than doing it practically in nature. They were given the opportunity to do water experiments and observe their natural surroundings. Each group was given a clipboard with worksheets, instructions to follow & a set of equipment. They were each designated a spot where they could test the water for pollution, the temperature & oxygen levels in the water. They had to assess & give feedback as to whether it was safe for animals & insects to thrive in these conditions. The groups took on the tasks with great eagerness & responsibility & Mrs Lara Lotter was very impressed with the feedback given by the groups. The pupils were then taken on a short hike of the Baakens Valley to see the beauty that lies right here in their backyards.
